We love this end of the beach. It's a lot quiter, and although its narrow, it never seems to be jam packed. Whenever we've been, the beach has always been raked at night. It's just so peaceful, I rarely venture onto the other side of the marina, what we call the 'tourist beach' ! But if you have kids, I suspect that side is better as there are far more amenities.

Hi Debi

I think the beach at Formentor may be what you are looking for. Cheniesbucks has just come back from a week in PP and she spent a lot of time there. She said the beach and sea were beautiful.

You will need the car or bus for this beach. It could be done on foot but its along way up and down mountains never seen people walking there. Or you could get the boat from PP. It gets very busy in summer you have to get there early to get your spot. Should be ok in May. Its a lovely beach in the summer we go from 8.30 to 7 a great beach to people watch.We have a villa in CSV we have lovely small beaches here with clear water and its not to far to walk from PP. Stay untill the sunsets at the MallorcaBar with a jug of sangria and watch the mountain turn pink.
Thats where you will find me in three weeks time!!

sounds perfect, looking forward to many sunsets, and sunrises for that matter, my fave part of the day!

we are hiring a car (smart car..lol) for a week, so we will be mobile, envious of you going in 3 weeks !!! my time will come!!!

To be honest im bowled over with peoples passion for P.P....im usually a south mallorca girl, but as im hitting 30 !!! but as they say, your only as old, as the man you feel!! or woman ...;-)...

Any particular beach, that is by this mallorcaBar for sangria and sunset !! or do i just follow signs for CSV

have a fab time when you go!!!

Just follow the signs. CSV has two small bays you will be able to see pink mountain at both. cala molins is where you will find mallorcan bar, next to carpark.
Looking forward to it ,not been since August.
Its a working week painting and cleaning but will make lots of time for sangria!!
